I moved to Rowland Heights five years ago to attend Cal Poly Pomona's school of Public Administration. Before I actually lived in Rowland Heights, me and my friends would come here to eat and shop at the 99 ranch market and other great supermarkets in the area. The variety was the best for Asian foods and there was plenty of good restaurants to visit while we were here shopping.

After deciding to attend Cal Poly, I knew the best place to live was Rowland Heights. It is a safe neighborhood with a lot of ethnic diversity, good neighbors and beautiful homes and hills.

These last few years have taught me a lot about the area I now call home. Our great schools, our diverse and safe community, the residents friendly attitudes, and the community involvement all have led me to want to ensure that Rowland unified school district does not become another failed school district.

Life before Rowland:

I grew up in Riverside California in a suburban 3-bedroom house on a street caled Toyon.  I attended Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic school from 1st through 8th grade, and Ramona high school from 9-12.
I have been invlved in little league sports since I was in the 2nd grade and played junior Varsity and Varsity baseball for Ramona high.

I attended the University of California Riverside. During that time I was an exchange student in Korea. I attended Yonsei University in Korea. While attending Yonsei, I learned Korean language.
